Wasn't sure what to expect but it was a great place. Didn't see everything as it is larger than it looks. There are demos that you can watch on glass blowing which are interesting. There are some very beautiful pieces on display. A great place to spend some time.

We've visited before and it was impressive then. This trip was to see the new wing just opened. Just the new wing took us nearly two hours and we skipped all the old sections and demonstrations (many of which are also part of the major addition). The first thing you notice in the new Contemporary Art and Design Gallery is... More

It's fascinating to watch the glass making demonstrations. There is so much to see and many places to sit and rest on your journey. There are so many exquisite pieces it is difficult to walk away.

Corning Museum of Glass has grown over the years from its initial museum. We returned years later to find a new building and incredible place to house so many different glass works. These works of art are displayed in such a way that you can photograph items alone or with nearby pieces that compliment each other. The building takes full... More

Well if you like glass and anything to do with glass this is the place for you. Right from the live shows to the artifacts this place will keep you occupied. Not to mention they have one of the better gift shops around for which I dont think you need a ticket. You can park close by at the visitor... More

Stunning displays of art, mixed in with the history of glass all set in a beautiful facility make this a "must see". Excellent displays, a chance to learn glass-blowing first-hand, a great dining facility and huge gift shop make this a trip worth taking.

Must visit - love the double decker bus! Educational, awe inspiring and fun! Corning is full of great places to eat and shop as well, so there is plenty to keep you busy for days. And it is so close to the Lakes. Any body visiting the Finger Lakes should make it a point to visit.

If anyone ever looks up my reviews (and notes all my typing mistakes), I am viciously critical (I swear I'm nicer in real life). I have absolutely no criticisms. My teenagers didn't whine "are we almost done?" even once; My husband and I didn't whine "are we almost done?" There are so many various aspects to the history of glass... More

Fascinating to see artistic creations made of glass dramatically displayed in white halls. Favorite exhibits were making glass goblet, shattering glass, and demonstrating optic fiber.
